There is a much better life ahead (03/02/15)
The temple/āśrama building is looking very good. I can see everything is professional quality with more important added bhakti. Gaura Haribol! Looking forward to being there personally in future.
I hope ______ is strong and holds his ground for a better life. His wife is nice, but too much envy and hassle from that person. I think she will be political by coming to your program. If she is really sincere, she should come to you with sincere tears in her eyes and straw in the teeth. These situations are always difficult and often end in non-Kṛṣṇa conscious way.
Tell ______ to hang on to the holy name and Kṛṣṇa’s lotus feet. There is a much better life ahead if he can stay away from the reach of Māyā. To do that he must chant, follow principles, do service, take prasādam and keep always the association of devotees.
In the last 45 years I have never been alone for more than a few hours except when I was in Africa alone for 4 months. Association of proper devotees is very necessary. The problem is that all devotee association these days may not be that good and so we have to be careful and unfortunately we have to avoid bogus devotees and materialists.
